Modify your own source code with this piece of Python black magic

Project description

Modify your own source code with this piece of Python black magic.

When a piece of code calls replace_me(value), that line will be replaced with the given value. If you want to insert a comment and keep the line that inserted it, use insert_comment(value).

ATTENTION: Calling these functions will modify your source code. Keep backups.

Example:

from replace_me import replace_me, insert_comment

# If you run this program, this source code will change.

# These two lines will become the same:
# Hello World
replace_me("Hello World", as_comment=True)

# Code generation. Creates a hard coded list of 100 numbers.
replace_me('numbers = ' + str(list(range(100))))

import random
# The next comment will be replaced with a random number.
insert_comment(random.randint(1, 10))
# ??

# Pseudo-quine, replaces the line with itself.
quine = 'replace_me(quine)'
replace_me(quine)
